Want me to run down there and help? I'm pretty close.

They should be able to find one and ship it here in SWP.

hahah......

i've found that girls are usually more patient when learning how to modulate the clutch....

the porsche might be easier to drive actually.... when i drove a 996 turbo... it was super easy....

depending on her gramp's car model.... the 2wd might/probably will be easier than our cars......

honestly.... i think our cars are the hardest stick car to drive {and be smooth with} out of all the ones i've ever driven......

Yeah I got my WRX, had only driven stick once before for about 20 minutes. That was a fun week of learning I'm pretty smooth now, though.

Hopefully he will successfully teach her so she doesnt try to drive my car again.

her - "Hey, I can just try to learn on your car!"
me - ""
her - " "
me - "no effin way"
her - ""

Funny Story. When I worked at camelback this past year, a younger 20 year old who worked at Mazda down the street came in and bought a WRx from another Sales Associate. He taught him how to drive stick, the kid wasn't comfortable driving it home so the sales guy drove it home while the kid drove a automatic off the lot. Well 834 miles later i see a WRX pull up on a flat bed. I wonder what the hell, walk outside and smell the clutch burning! It was the kids WRX, ohh so sad.. Of course he blames it on Subaru and they end up replacing the clutch for free

Avondale FTW !

As far as I know, we have
two respected swic salesmen,
two respected swic techs, and
one respected swic service manager there.
You have all your bases covered.

If I was to buy a new car,
have one serviced, and/or
buy parts from, it will/would be AVONDALE !

Right when you drive on the lot,
you can just feel teh nasioc luv.

v8eaterWRX come see me at Avondale Subaru and I will take care of her on the price as best as I can. I work tuesday 12-9... lemme know if there is anything and I can do for your guys 805-868-0303


Oh yeah Avondale Subaru has the cheapest sales tax of any subaru dealership in the state of AZ and that ultimately can mean $500-$1500 cheap car in the long run with all the state mandated fees. Lemme know man I will be more than glad to help

I totally agree. I've had a manual car ever since i was able to drive at 16 and it still took me almost a week and a half to get use to shifting the STi smoothly.
